Michigan is full of a variety of sizes for city limits. We have everything from villages and towns to cities and metro areas. In the middle of all of those are the small cities, these are the cities that aren't large in physical nature or number of residents. Although some people try and make the world fair, no two small cities are created equal, some are far better than others.

Holland is one of those small cities in Michigan, but depending on who you talk to you may get different answers on what kind of small city Holland is. Personally, Lake Michigan and the beach access helps a lot, great sports programs, and more are in their favor. Some will tell you that Holland is the best small city in the state, and some might even say the country, WalletHub did some research, and they aren't the best, but they are one of the best in the country.
